It's over a decade after Suspiria and Dario Argento still sucks
I, uh...did not like this. I kind of hated it. I’m honestly astounded at the rating this holds.
This felt like a glorified student film. It’s a white filmmaker essentially using serious racial and policing issues carelessly as his playthings in a Tarantino knockoff.
Every wouldn’t-it-be-cool use of the camera is painfully obvious and would be distracting if the film wasn’t already shallow to begin with.
The fact that this is compared to Do The Right Thing is simultaneously boring…
Wow. I cannot imagine liking this any less.
Blue Velvet is the world’s shittiest mystery. Without the distinction of the talent attached, its script isn’t fit for community theater. Good performances mean nothing to me when there’s next to nothing behind them, and frankly, even many of the performances here are overrated.
This film relies heavily on the viewer being so shocked or scandalized by the sexual proclivities depicted that it keeps them transfixed, because there’s nothing of substance going…
